The Mazda MX-5 is renowned for its handling, but it could definitely use a little more grunt. British tuning firm BBR has acknowledged this issue by introducing two new supercharger packages for the lightweight roadster.

The Stage One package includes an Eaton MP62 supercharger, a new intercooler and high-flow injectors. There's also a new air box, upgraded hoses and a StarChip ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the engines develop:

  • 2.0i MK3 - 235 BHP (175 kW) and 190 lb-ft (257 Nm) of torque
  • 2.0i MK3.5 - 241 BHP (180 kW) and 190 lb-ft (257 Nm) of torque
  • 1.8SE MK3 / MK3.5 - 217 BHP (162 kW) and 176 lb-ft (238 Nm) of torque

For more power the Stage Two package adds a new exhaust manifold, a high-flow air filter, a stainless sports exhaust system and a revised ECU. These changes enable the engines to develop:

  • 2.0i MK3 - 252 BHP (188 kW) and 208 lb-ft (282 Nm) of torque
  • 2.0i MK3.5 - 258 BHP (192 kW) and 208 lb-ft (282 Nm) of torque
  • 1.8SE MK3 / MK3.5 - 231 BHP (172 kW) and 190 lb-ft (257 Nm) of torque

The Stage One package is priced from £4295, while Stage Two retails for £5455.
